Call for Papers

The past twenty years have seen a flurry of activity in the area of parallel and distributed computing. In recent years, novel parallel and distributed computational models have been proposed in the literature, reflecting advances in new computational devices and environments such as optical interconnects, programmable logic arrays, networks of workstations, radio communications, mobile computing, DNA computing, quantum computing, sensor networks etc. It is very encouraging to note that the advent of these new models has lead to significant advances in the resolution of various difficult problems of practical interest.

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of the parallel and distributed computational models. The workshop is meant to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of parallel and distributed computing taken in an inclusive, rather than exclusive, sense. We are convinced that the workshop atmosphere will be conducive to open and mutually beneficial exchanges of ideas between the participants.

Keynote Talk

  • Speaker: Professor Alba Cristina Magalhaes Alves de Melo (University of Brasilia)
  • Titie: Parallel Biological Sequence Comparison in Heterogeneous Platforms with Multiple Programming Environments: Strategies and Challenges
  • Abstract: Biological Sequence Alignment is a very basic operation in Bioinformatics used routinely worldwide. Smith-Waterman is the exact algorithm used to compare two sequences, obtaining the optimal alignment in quadratic time and space. In order to accelerate Smith-Waterman, many parallel strategies were proposed in the literature, using platforms such as GPUs, Intel Phis and multi-cores. Nevertheless, aligning DNA sequences of millions of characters is still a very challenging task. In this talk, we discuss related work in the area of parallel biological sequence alignment and present our multi-platform tool, which was used to align DNA sequences with up to 249 millions of characters in 384 GPUs. In order to achieve this, we propose an innovative speculation technique, which is able to parallelize a phase of the Smith-Waterman traceback that is inherently sequential. We combined our speculation technique with sophisticated buffer management and fine-grain linear space matrix processing strategies to obtain our parallel algorithm. As far as we know, this is the first implementation of Smith-Waterman able to retrieve the optimal alignment between sequences with more than 100 millions of characters. We will also present block pruning, a pruning technique that is able to prune more than 50% of the Smith-Waterman matrix and still retrieve the optimal alignment. We will then present the MASA (Multiplatform Architecture for Sequence Aligners) tool, that implements our parallel algorithm and runs in multi-cores (OpenMP, OmpSs, OpenCL), IntelPhis (OpenMP) and GPUs (CUDA, OpenCL). At the end of the talk, we will discuss open problems and challenges.
